Temp is meh and the logo is hard to see, but everything else is nice. :)
Change the synopsis font/color to mesh more with the box's grungy look.

What's wrong with the temp? I tried to get Techne's temp but the links on his template thread don't seem to go anywhere.

#17, The synopsis text is always my weak point.

Amazing but it would be better if it was a collector's edition and I can barely see the logo on the front. 4/5

Ladykiller 42 [ 1 decade ago ]

#17 & #21, that's the style the logo is supposed to be, atleast probably what adfd was going for here.

I think it's actually very effective, especially in context to the game.

#25, Your temp is great, but I think they meant the casing.

dmshaposv 47 [ 1 decade ago ]

@#22, I agree with you. The crytpic nature of some elements in the box is what makes it soo much more appealing. Its ADFD's style which is absoulutely his own.

I love the front cover. Its one of the best horror covers I've seen. The back would've been sublime with better font and color choices, but it still compliments the front well.

I also agree you should've used a better temp plastic/casing. The one you are using seems out-dated, especially in comparison to the ones made by Shadysaiyan, Techne and Sens.

I'm not going to lie or be modest, I love the way the front came out :D I'm going to rework the back a little and use a better temp casing.

nextwave 1 [ 1 decade ago ]

Well I see that, DMS & LK, but I think the cryptic, abstract nature could be preserved even with the logo slightly more visible, but its ADFD's artistic choice. I love the design choices on the front, but an average consumer might want to be able to see what the game is with just a glance. Regardless, the box is very effective in conveying the horror feel, so by all means, leave the front as is.

Eagerly waiting for the update! :) And congrats on HOF!
I hadn't faved you as an author until now! You certainly deserve it though. Arthouse designer = fav.

#38, Thanks.

See, that's what I was talking about. The actual artwork on the cover. (You know, "Coverart.") I didn't ask "who edited someone else's artwork into a cover?"

Now that that's clear, where'd the artwork you used for James come from? (Official art? Deviantart? Another series entirely?) I'm pretty curious, since it doesn't look like James (Due to the hair.)

Anyway, great job.

#41, Sorry I misunderstood. I found it while googling Silent Hill 2 material, I don't who it's by or where it's from. It's probably not James but it was too perfect for the style I was after. Gald you like it though :)

Okay, I actually loved it, but haven't commented on it. It's freakin, freakin, FREAKIN awesome. One of my favorite styles in GFX is grunge and abstract. And splatter. ;) Anyway, really nice box, the back is awesome, the front is awesome, the characters on the front are awesome, the text on the back is awesome, absolutely EVERYTHING is awesome. :D Definitely a fav.
